PHM is rolling-up a large and fragmented market of small, profitable businesses providing healthcare products and services to chronically ill patients. The companies are acquired for their technical and market expertise in certain product and service lines, as well as their patient databases. Once acquired, PHM works to offer these newly acquired services to its entire patient base, thereby increasing revenue per patient and achieving organic post acquisition revenue growth and profits.

PHM also announced that Andrew Folmer, current Chief Financial Officer and Interim President, has assumed the permanent position of President of the Company.

"This quarter has illustrated the power of cross selling on PHM's profitability," said Michael Dalsin, Chairman and CEO of PHM. "Early in the quarter PHM acquired several companies in the southeast U.S., adding important service lines and senior management talent. While it is still in the early stages, PHM achieved an important milestone in generating high-margin services patient enrollment through cross-selling efforts. While increasing revenues 55%, profits grew 290%, reflecting the impact of generating this high gross margin revenue on net profits. I want to congratulate the operational team, lead by Andrew Folmer on a record quarter, both in terms of revenues and profit growth. Because of these results, we have decided to permanently promote Andrew to President of the Company. In the coming quarters, PHM's operational team will continue to implement this core strategy of cross selling."

"On the acquisition front, PHM's M&A team continues to strengthen its pipeline of potential acquisition targets" continued Mr. Dalsin. "We have seen another quarter with high quarterly EPS growth of 205% in part as a result of acquisition this quarter. PHM's balance sheet of over $7.0 million in cash, and an initial commitment for a $5 million acquisition debt facility gives us the potential to close several more earnings accretive deals in our pipeline quickly."

About PHM

PHM is an acquisition-oriented, fast-growing and profitable company servicing patients with heart disease and other chronic health conditions. PHM is focused on acquiring companies in a highly fragmented and developing market of small privately-held companies servicing chronically ill patients with multiple disease states caused mainly by age and obesity. Because of the new and highly fragmented nature of the market, PHM is actively identifying and evaluating profitable, annuity-based companies to acquire at favorable prices for their patient databases and technical expertise. PHM's post-acquisition organic growth strategy is to increase annual revenue per patient by offering multiple services to the same patient, consolidating the patient's services and making life easier for the patient. The expected result is growing EPS with each acquisition and growing revenue and profits from the cross selling efforts.
